This week Sue and I have been invited to attend a Pastors and Wives Forum hosted by Ethnos360 (formerly New Tribes Missions) in Sanford, FL. Ethnos is paying our travel, food and hotel costs. Other pastors and wives will be present – listening to and discussing world missions. Sue and I are honored to have been included. Pray for us – safety in travel, attentiveness – and for us to be a blessing to others. We have 2 missionaries with this mission agency – Bells and de Roos’.
Next Sunday Paul Gardner will speak in our ABF hour to teens and adults, reporting about Camp Barakel. This ministry works with 1000s of children/teens during the summer – as well as adults too throughout the year. Barakel camp is located in Fairview, MI. Over 30 churches own and operate the camp – HBC being one. Paul has been on staff there since the early 1980s. He is currently the director. He and Hannah have been here before.
Summer brochures for camp are on the kiosk. Scholarships are available. Please see me if you are interested. Many life-changing decisions were made by both Sue and me at a Christian camp. Check out those available dates.
It’s that time again – those winter blues. To help break up the monotony, sign up to participate in our Progressive Dinner here at the church, Saturday, March 14. Check out the sign up list on the bulletin board for a dish to bring. Don’t isolate in your igloo – venture out and enjoy food, fun and fellowship.
